What To Do
There are many things that you should really do before your house move, however if you do as many as you can, you will notice the difference when moving. Here are a few things that you should consider doing.
Invest in high quality boxes for moving: When moving house you will need a lot of moving boxes and packing materials, and you should therefore ensure that you have these ready well in advance so that you pack all of your things up in your own time, without having to pack at the last minute.
Get your mail redirected: If you are moving house, especially if you have previously moved and are not moving out of your parents’ house for the first time, you should get you mail redirected to your new address by Royal Mail – This will stop your identity from being stolen. There will likely be a small fee for this, but it is something that definitely needs doing.
Inform all of the relevant people: There are likely many people that need to be informed that you are moving, and the people that need to be told differs slightly from person to person. You need to sit down and put together a list of all of the people that you need to tell. Some of these may include the bank, your doctor, your workplace, your children’s schools and your utility providers.
Take final meter readings: Before you leave your current house it is imperative that you take final meter readings so that you don’t end up getting billed for someone else’s utilities. Write these down and call your provider to tell them your meter readings.
These are only some of the things that you need to do before you move house too – With so many things to do we strongly advise that when you have some free time, you sit down and write a list of all of the things that you can think of which need doing so that you can avoid forgetting important moving aspects.
Good luck with you house move, and don’t forget to let us know how it goes.
